Hudson is extensible continuous integration engine used for Java projects. It’s architecture can be used for others languages as PHP too.


  1. download war file
  2. run direct in console java -jar hudson.war (free port 8080 andJDK 1.5+)
  3. or make install to servlet server (Tomcat, Jetty, JBoss, …)
  4. after that go http://localhost:8080
  5. plugins recommended for php


For build can use phing (example) or ant.
